Red Bull RB8 - rear floor variations 17 March 2012

Red Bull have brought their second, highly revised version of the RB8 to Melbourne, with new exits for the exhausts (more squared off like the McLaren ) and a new floor in front of the rear tyres. On Friday the team used a layout with a transverse cut (1) to induce airflow to go under the side channels. On Saturday this area was different: more vertical fins (2) now direct the airflow and a different cut (1) in front of the rear tyres reduces drag in this area.
